Ventura County brush fires: Evacuation orders and road closures

Ventura County brush fires: Evacuation orders and road closures


Mandatory and voluntary evacuations were underway Thursday evening near the border of Ventura and Los Angeles counties after two separate brush fires erupted within miles of each other.

In Santa Rosa, the so-called Hill Fire burned 10,000 acres and prompted mandatory evacuation orders for Camarillo Springs, the Vallecito Trailer Park, the campus of Cal State University Channel Islands, and the neighborhood of Dos Vientos.

Shortly before 8:30 p.m., the commanding officer at the Point Mugu Naval Base issued a mandatory evacuation of the facility.

All alternates for US101 from western Ventura County to eastern Ventura County continue to be severely impacted. The best alternate continues to be SR-126. Another closure…Potrero Rd. has been closed as our friends @VCFD work hard to keep life and property safe. #hillfire
